The Microanalysis Society is pleased to announce registration for QMA 2019, Quantitative Microanalysis 2019, is now open.

Biological TEM workshop (University of Georgia - Athens, GA) Spring 2019

This intensive, three-day workshop provides a practical and basic theoretical introduction to the Transmission Electron Microscope and biological sample preparation techniques. Each day will consist of lecture, discussion and *hands-on* training led by GEM staff.
 
Who:  Anyone requiring training on TEM and biological sample preparation. The workshop will be limited to 6 participants based on the availability of equipment. 

Quantitative Imaging: From Acquisition to Analysis (Cold Spring Harbor, NY) 2019

Combining careful image acquisition with rigorous computational analysis allows extraction of quantitative data from light microscopy images that is far more informative and reproducible than what can be seen by eye. This course will focus on advanced quantitative fluorescence microscopy techniques used for imaging a range of biological specimens, from tissues to cells to single molecules. The course is designed for quantitative cell and molecular biologists, biophysicists and bioengineers.

Winter and Spring Microscopy Courses - 2019

Course topics include advanced optical microscopy methods (several), biological TEM, and microanalysis. Please note, some courses have a registration deadline.

Request for proposals at the Advanced Imaging Center (HHMI Janelia Research Campus) - Dec 2018

The HHMI at Janelia Farms is now accepting proposals from scientists who would like to conduct experiments at the Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) at Janelia Research Campus. The deadline to submit a proposal is 5:00 p.m. (US eastern time), February 28, 2019.
 
The AIC makes imaging technologies developed at Janelia available to the scientific community before the instruments can be purchased commercially.

Atom by atom fabrication via electron beams and scanning probes (ORNL)

If you are interested in applying STEM not only to visualize matter, but also to control it, move atom, and build devices by electron beam - the registration is now open for the inaugural workshop “Atom by atom fabrication via electron beams and scanning probes”, to be held at Oak Ridge National Laboratory on November 1,2, 2018.
 
This workshop will bring together experts in scanning probe atomic fabrication and the rapidly emerging field of atomically resolved electron beam matter manipulation, to highlight the recent advances and opportunities and serve as a much-nee

Aug 2018 - Introduction to Scientific Digital Images workshop

The Introduction to Scientific Digital Images workshop will be held on Thursday, August 16, 2018 from 8:30am to 1pm in the Kuiper Space Sciences building, room 308. The workshop provides a foundation for making good scientific and ethical decisions for working with digital image data.

Request for proposals at the Advanced Imaging Center (HHMI Janelia Research Campus) - April 2018

Dear Colleagues,
 
We are now accepting proposals from scientists who would like to conduct experiments at the Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) at Janelia Research Campus. The deadline to submit a proposal is 5:00 p.m. (US eastern time), June 15, 2018.
 
 
The AIC makes imaging technologies developed at Janelia available to the scientific community before the instruments can be purchased commercially.

2018 Nikon Small World contest

Once again its that time of year for the annual Nikon Small World photomicrography competition’s call for entries and I would like to extend a personal invitation to enter your finest work in either the still image competition or the movie contest. Or both if you wish!
 
Over the past year we have been working to help build a more efficient system for you to enter these contests. We now offer an entry portal which, if you haven’t already signed up for, will greatly reduce the time and effort in entering your photos.
